I had the pleasure of working with Dave on the healey.org website as well as
the AHCUSA magazine where he was a technical advisor for both.  I was lucky
to spend some time with him at Rendezvous and was a student and recipient of
his mechanical wisdom.

He will be sorely missed.

I hate to be the bearer of this news but Marlene called me this evening to
tell me that Dave died last night.  I spoke with her just now.  She  said he

went peacefully and she has family with her.  I am not home to get  his
address--it is in the AHCA Member handbook and perhaps someone will post
it.  I know
Marlene will appreciate hearing from all.

At one time Dave was a prolific poster to this list and helped so many of
with all kinds of things.  Though I spoke with him by phone a  number of
times and exchanged lots of emails, particularly about projects in  which we
had a
common interest(installing NICAL hardtops on our 100's was one  that was the

subject of numerous letters, photo exchanges, etc) I never got to  meet Dave

in person.  A few years back Gary Fuqua of Missouri, myself and  Dave ( we
had similar 100's) had corresponded about getting together for a  trip
somewhere but it never came off.  I regret that.

Dave was the real deal--I am richer for having known him and poorer for his

having passed.
